The latest out of the AL West..
- Mariners General Manager Jack Zduriencik says that he is "wide open" to making other moves, tweets Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports. In a perfect world, Seattle would like to obtain a leadoff man and a middle-of-the-order bat.
- Geoff Baker of the Seattle Times implores Mariners fans not to rush to judgement on an offseason in which they signed Raul Ibanez while missing out on Josh Hamilton, Nick Swisher, and others. Baker opines that the opportunity to sign Michael Bourn is practically staring them in the face and it's the kind of big splash that the club needs to make.
- ESPNDallas.com's Richard Durrett checked in with ESPNChicago's Bruce Levine to get the skinny on the newest member of the Rangers, catcher A.J. Pierzynski. Levine doesn't see the 36-year-old logging 100 games behind the plate in the Texas heat, but believes that he will prove to be a good value with 90 games at catcher and the rest at DH.
